I have always been involved in fitness. From running to jumping from planes in the ARMY to Zumba and Yoga Instructor.
However, we should also pay attention to the way we feel. In fact, when we do not pay attention to it..., it shows! For example, we won't want to get out of bed in the morning, we are less nice to people, etc.
I know about stigma, not only as a psychologist but also at the individual level. It can be kind of "embarrassing" to say that we feel angry or sad. I mean, what would others think of me? Well, that should be their problem, not ours.
In fact, many times, when we are upset/angry... we are actually in pain.
I believe that we are all beautiful individuals with so limited time in this life. It is our choice what we do with our energy during that time. We will make mistakes. However, we must also try to learn how to do and be our best!
I can't claim that I have been always in my best behavior. However, as I keep growing older and wiser, I think more about my spirituality. Spirituality does not have to be considered only when we think about a particular religion. In fact, most religions just want us to become better individuals!
To me, spirituality is more about being the best soul that we can. It is when we feel proud of what we think, say, and do (for us and for others). That is why I am considering becoming a minister. Just to keep spreading peace and love.
We get information from many different sources. Some information comes through our senses. Some might even come through our spiritual/invisible senses (or clairs). For information via our physical senses, check out my page on Biofeedback.
Have you ever had a hunch about something? We all have had that "knowing." Sadly, we tend to ignore it.
If you get a "sense" about something, go with it! If that means that you must just say "No" to someone or put them on hold, do it. This does not mean to follow our first impulse. What I mean is to acknowledge it. Write it down as your first possible answer. Later on, study it and proceed with your actions.
We tend to hold most of our answers inside ourselves.
